The Annual Edinburgh Tournament 2014

After much anticipation, this year the Edinburgh University Polo Club hosted the Annual Tournament from 31st October to 2nd November at Dalmahoy. Taking part were Edinburgh, Stirling, St Andrews and Newcastle. Spurred on by the wonderful weather, excellent polo was played by all, particularly Carlos Baird, who was awarded most valuable player and our Edinburgh’s most improved player, Victoria Lombardi. 
The team lists were dominated by Edinburgh University players, especially in the Open and the tournament’s first alumni match, in which the players were all representing the hosting university. The weekend was kindly supported by GAM (Global Asset Management), and prizes were donated by Pampeano and Player Layer. Our chosen charity was Riding for the disabled, thanks everyone for your donations! The ponies, hired by the Douglas family and Thom Bell, performed to their usual high standards. The spectators and players were entertained by the “apres polo” style music scene, amusing commentary and treated to LovSushi and a barbeque. Players let their hair down on Friday night, with extra Halloween enthusiasm, followed by a trip to Garibaldi’s. On Saturday night we dined at Candy Bar and then on Lola Lo Club, who generously sponsor us throughout the year.
